Environmentally Friendly Cashmere
Andiata’s AA grade cashmere is fine and luxurious, and it comes from Inner Mongolia, where all the best cashmere in the world is produced. Andiata’s cashmere feels soft, silky and smooth. It has an OEKO-TEX certificate, and is colored with environmentally friendly dyes.
Fiber of Excellence
Cashmere is one of the most precious natural fabrics in the world. Andiata’s Cashmere fibre length is 32-34mm which is a third longer than the standard. That makes it of extremely high quality. The yarns used are from the throat and belly of the white goats where the fibre is the finest and has to be extra long to keep the goat warm. Each goat is combed by hand every spring. To make an average-sized sweater, you will need cashmere fibre from approximately 4 adult goats.
- We recommend to hand wash and air your Andiata cashmere regularly. Use lukewarm water to wet the product through. Use only mild detergent.
- Gently swirl your sweater and let it soak for 30 minutes. Reshape and dry flat on a bath towel. Then carefully roll the sweater in the bath towel, absorbing all the water.
- Pilling is a natural occurrence in knit garments and it is usually caused by friction. A cashmere sweater pills only once. As the fibers used in Andiata cashmere are longer, it will not happen again after you comb the pills using a special Andiata cashmere comb.
